What is the Sports Premium?

The Government has provided funding of £150 million per annum for the academic years 2013/14, 2014/15 and 2015/16 – this was extended to 2016/2017 then doubled for the academic year 2017/2018. This is in place to provide new, substantial sports funding for primary schools . This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.

Impact 2016-17

  • Achieved the Sainsbury’s School Games Kite Mark of Silver. Every class received at least 2 hours minimum of PE each week, active before and after school sessions as well as lunch time clubs, taking part in inter and intra school competitions. Sports leaders were also appointed from KS2 pupils. PE and physical activity has been enhanced throughout school and the profile of PE has been raised with our parents and the community as we have celebrated and shared our achievements.
  • Increase participation in South Ribble competitions. This has allowed all of our children to compete at their own level and every child in school has represented Samlesbury in physical activity in both competitive and inclusion sporting events. This has led to an increase in pupil self esteem, enjoyment and confidence in pupils’ physical activity and sport.
  • Appoint ‘Sport Abassadors’ to lead, manage and officiate Sainsbury’s School Games
  • Providing challenging sporting opportunites for our ‘gift and talented’ such as South Ribble Cross Country Competition, Partnership Netball events and Athletics competitions.
